A subject stands out on the face of this text which is one of the most solemn and heart searching in the Bible—that subject is eternity. The subject is one of which even the wisest man can only take in a little at a time. We have no eyes to see it fully, and no mind to grasp it; and yet we must not refuse to consider it. There is a depth of stars in the heavens above us, which the most powerful telescope cannot pierce; yet it is well worth it to look into them and learn something, even if we cannot learn everything.

There are heights and depths about the subject of eternity which mortal man can never comprehend; but God has spoken of it, and we have no right to turn completely away from it. The subject is one, which we must never approach with­out the Bible in our hands. The moment we depart from "God's written Word,” in considering eternity and the future state of man, we are then likely to fall into error.

In examining points like these we must have nothing to do with preconceived notions as to what God's character is like, and what we think God ought to be, or ought to do with man after death. We only have to find out what is written. What does the Scripture say? What does the Lord say? It is foolish to tell us that we ought to have "noble thoughts about God,” independent of, and over and above, Scripture. The noblest thoughts about God, which we have a right to hold, are the thoughts that He has been pleased to reveal to us in His written Word.
